                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out SUNSET to see 
what's new.  I don't wanna hurt anybody's feelings or anything, but LUDUS MAGNUS 
really goofed with their 1-4-0.  The guys at DARK OVERLORDS like really pulled 
together to get a 4-0-2 this turn, moving up by 8.  What was the name of that team 
who got 3-1-0 this turn for a total 146-138-8 you ask?  (Sure)  OMINOUS REIGN's their 
name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for MUSUBU KIN?  KANO CLAN's proud of him 
after beating LENNY SPARK and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  LENNY 
SPARK's match with MUSUBU KIN cost him a loss of 20 points!  What a putz!  ZOLDIVAR 
fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No one 
said he was a genius...  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit 
of...(!)  Oh well, welcome BLAKSKUL.  Aren't GRIM FANDANGO proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  420 B.C. was the most avoided 
team.  Is a 63-51-6 record really that scary?  I don't know what KANO CLAN's been 
doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from 420 B.C., that's fer 
sher.  Can THE RED BLADES' STIXANNE STONE be more popular than me?  She was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?  See if I ever talk to WALLI WEEBLE 
again!  MOSHI HARU was so low when He challenged he.  Hhmph!  I was sorry to see such 
an unfair "fight" in SUNSET.  WALLI WEEBLE got 4 points after beating MOSHI HARU, 20 
points below him.  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out MY SWORD AND 
SAVIOR challenged RHASKOS.  After all, haven't DEVIATION and BLOOD AND SAND had a 
long standing duel in SUNSET?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but 
RHASKOS wants me to write about it since he was subdued by MY SWORD AND SAVIOR.  
Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!  OSOUP 
returns from the Dark Arena, maybe a "little upset" at his THE BOWLS teammates...  
What a bummer!  ANITA PHIXX got wasted by I SMOKED WHAT?!!!  But with a 5-5-1, I 
guess BEN'S BAZAAR aren't too bummed.  It was kind of sad, seeing old SHOG stumbling 
around the arena, before HIPPY LOVE finished him off.  Oh well!  It was so gross when 
I SMOKED WHAT?!! of COSMIC FREAK OUT killed ANITA PHIXX.  They should start making 
warriors use safer weapons, or more shields, or something...  Fight, fight, fight.  
Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  SUNSET is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Stone Golem -- You are one ulgy Mother..... -- Ghost of Voodoo Woman

Hardy -- I was drunk so I want another shot, let's go again! -- Timoth

Bix -- You need to lay off the gumbo sweety -- Gwenhyvar

Hail Sunset?  After twenty-some years of my team and I imprisoned in that accursed
demon's dungeon we are free!  Never again will I purchase a containment spell from
that ridiculous old necromancer.  Ahh, but what is a manager to do for a better
record, eh?  Pay no heed to the abysmal record, as you may guess many "sacrifices"
were required to the DA to appease that pesky demon, and all it bought me was two
decades of torture!  And I see that our old home Seam is no more, just as well, the
sacrifices from the populace were beginning to arouse suspicions.  So, beware Sunset!
We come for you and look forward to seeing your blood spilt on the sands. -- The
Master, mgr of Dark Overlords

A return of 1-2, not the best of returns.  Although, I count it as 1-1, since I sent
that conniving Voodoo Woman to the DA.  Had she gotten her wards done correctly
during the summoning, perhaps we would not have spent the last 20 years imprisioned!
Good riddance! -- The Master, Dark Overlords

Kano -- Since you asked and claimed you don't down-challenge:

turn 668:
XIAN LIN overpowered CATFISH in a 1 minute uneven Challenge duel.

Whaddya know, I cited an instance of you down-challenging!  Not that anyone here
needs any further proof, but you are full of crap. -- Buri

Sledgehead -- First shot to the groin???  Really???  Watch your back... ALWAYS. --
Reduvius

     You need a system of mirrors to see your back, surely?

All -- Would somebody be so kind to let us know what in the world that Gentleben
goofball is talking about.  Apparently he's the only one ever in the history of Duel
omniscient enough to know every detail of arena combat, so he should enlighten us all
with this "truth" in which he's so familiar. -- Kano

Gentleben -- I don't seem to recall any instance when you graced us with one shred of
your "truth." If you're indeed the only one with the divine intuition to know the
truth, then by all means allow the rest of us to become endowed with your limitless
knowledge.  Gimme a break, please. You're just a slobbering moron with a big mouth.
You don't even have the language skill to get past the filthy four-letter words.
Shut up and go back to slurping from your doggy bowl. -- Kano

Nomad should know all too well I will pick and choose my fights whenever I feel like
it.  As long as he's not pleased, then I'm just tickled.  And when he's the cause of
getting another one of his killed (just like the last two), then hearing him whine
will be my distinct pleasure. -- Kano

Hippy Love -- Maybe not a wise challenge on my part. -- Froot

Dragon Asp -- Next time I'll try to use a weapon that I'm a little better suited
for...  You would think my manager would know better.  Nice fight! -- Fish

Knuckles -- My manager said he was quite unhappy with my performance in this
fight....  Not sure if I like the sound of that.... -- O'Soup

Minami Tori and Kano -- Actually you down-challenged us before we ever considered
doing so.  I don't have the time at the moment to dig up the fight, so at the moment
am stuck with only the assertion.  But when I get the chance I will look it up. --
Batwamba and the Tribe

And the Dark Overlords retrun.  Welcome!  Gotta love Sunset!  Enjoy the drinks on
Stik at the Broken Bone!  He's the Old Guy in the corner, the barmaid will know who
gets the bill. -- Nomad and the Tribe

Balkskul -- I coulda, shoulda, woulda had that one!  Just one more blow!  Dang!
Drinks on me at the ol' Bone, I guess. -- Batwamba

Pietros -- Now that is what I call a quality win!  And a bunch of skills as well!  Am
I being picky if I wish they were different skills?  Yeah, probably too picky. --
Kadoka

Kipling -- Perhaps you needed Mowgli to deal with a wolf? -- Lupus

Wyatt Earp -- This ain't the OK Corrall, partner!  You're going to get tired of that
one, aren't you? -- Gitchigoomie

DM Zoldivar -- Well well well, look at you, all Duelmaster and stuff, congrats. --
Gentleben, Ben's Bazaar

I Smoked What?!! -- You smoked my @$$, that's what!  Damn! -- Aunt Tilla--The Nun

Raze -- Were you just Razing me or did you really enjoy that? -- Anita Phixx

Cold Shot -- I, for one, am glad that is over.  Now where is Red House...ahhh, there
you are. -- Pain Gwen

Simenon -- You're a persistant little SOB, ain't ya, gus. -- Smurf Lightning

Fish -- Are you one of those land sharks or something? -- Dragon Asp

Nomad -- What are you doing going 11-4 for?  Hmmm... -- Gentleben

Froot E. Bowl and The Bowls -- Grab a chair and some spoons and let's have a
parrrtyyyy. -- Gentleben, Ben's Bazaar

Kano $#!+ -- If you want to ramble on and on for more than 200 words just write a
spotlight, we would all LOVE to hear your Duel Gospel, you are ever so smarter than
the rest of us boobs...well not really, but you could write a spotlight if you like I
need <cut off by hal or some other golem>

Kano $#!+ -- I hear that the whole prison system mail service is suffering, maybe
that's your problem and not the USPS, or maybe you just pissed off the wrong person
but I don't know how that could have happened... -- Gentleben

Kano $#!+ -- Damn Hal and those 200 words, cont.  You could write a spotlight if you
like, I need something to line the hamster cage with and your words would be well
suited to the task. -- Gentleben

HAL -- My counting has been suffering as of late, sorry. -- Gentleben

     You might try sending each personal as a separate email.

Zoldivar -- Well done. -- Panama Red

Gentleben -- Who are you calling dude? -- a very feminine Panama Red

Murgatroyd -- Good up challenge... but you shouldn't have believed everything you
hear about ol' Colonel Angus.  Colonel Angus might be rough.  Colonel Angus might not
smell like a bed of roses... but, deep down... Colonel Angus is very sweet.   oh, and
i <cut off by hal or some other golem>

Osoup -- Unwise challenge.... -- knuckles

Milina -- Another day at the office... -- silver haze

Gangol -- Our stables seem to be meeting up often.  <yawn> -- nannerpuss

     I don't know what golem is chopping the emailed personals, yours, ours, or one
     in between, and the only advice I can offer is, as noted above, try sending each
     personal separately.  It has been noted that when a lot are sent all scrunched
     up together (some email clients don't do this, and some do), someone, somewhere,
     lops them off after a certain length. -- the Editor
